Badlands Poster

2 — 23 September 2021 at Eye Filmmuseum.

Who will determine the future’s cinematic landscape? Which stories will be told and how?

Up-and-coming film talent at Eye: a new generation of Dutch makers are given the opportunity to present their debut films, discuss filmmaking and select films by makers that inspired them.

During the Badlands evenings, the filmmakers will illuminate their artistic and societal visions as well as explain their personal drives using their own works and excerpts from makers who inspired them. What do they dream of? Who inspires them and what would they like to see changed? How do these new talents depict the pressing issues in their own lives? Time to share personal experiences.

In September, Eye will celebrate Dutch cinema’s future with a selection of eleven talented up-and-coming filmmakers who work in various disciplines and have diverse backgrounds. What unites them is their individuality and unique artistic ideas on cinema as an artform, in short: as yet untold stories.

The talents of September: Lenina Ungari, Daniël Ernst, Rossella Nisio, Jemima de Jonge, Festus Toll, C.T.H. Fransen, Kevin Osepa, Aisha Madu, Emma Branderhorst, Vincent Tilanus and Daniël Kolf.

Badlands in an ongoing programme compiled by guest curators Lemuël de Graav, Xiang Yu Yeung and Eye programmer Ronald Simons and moderated by Noa Johannes (NTR/NPO3) and Marian Cousijn (art historian, curator).

BLUE LINKS

Blue is the sky, blue is the ocean. Blue is our mood (sometimes). Blue are the paths that have not yet been followed. 

The leaps, jumps, and dives that are implicit to clicking the blue links allow for traveling back and forth between states and spaces. When generating paths, we think through both collective physicality and individual domains — bound territories to be traversed.

Not so long ago, we sat inside, looking through the window, thinking about the outside. Today we welcome you to look through our windows from the outside, as they open from within. Grab your map and go on a journey, follow these links that connect us. Roam around the array of works, existing not only as single fractions but also as part of a collective.

Nothing exists in isolation, without pathways of convergence, overlap or synchronicity. We are all linked, connecting in-between and with each other. 

Blueness dissolves upon activation.

A Hybrid Reality Game30th of April till the 31st of May | FREE

Something is rising in the midst of the city surrounding us. In between the many microcosms of the infinitely unfinished city of Rotterdam, three potential futures are emerging in the nebulous atmosphere. A city mirroring a constant construction site opens up doorways to realities close enough to sense. The realities of the year 2041.

In a game of chance, players are led to a series of geographical locations, to try and unlock artefacts of the societies of Zhōuwéi Network. In the form of an ephemeral soundscape, EARTHRISE infiltrates your perception of the changing sceneries you find yourself in as you follow the directions of the game makers. As you surrender to the game, your destined path will unravel before you. Do you feel at home in your own reality? What about the one you are moving towards?

Playable now mobile only on https://earthrise.zhouwei.network/Zhōuwéi Network is a worldbuilding research umbrella that explores the design of affective undertones in different speculative future societies, in dialogue with currently emerging technocultural developments. The fiction series ‘Embodied ambitopias’ (2021) zooms in on hypothetical mind-body exercises, combined with speculative interfaces and contrasting rhetorics to shed light on the differences, as well as the occasional similarities, between the three worlds.

Liminal Vision is a creative collaboration between Victor Evink (s x m b r a) and Emilia Tapprest (nvisible.studio). Their project Zhouwéi Network is currently showcased at Zero Emissions by 2099, in MAMA, curated by Mary Ponomareva.

With contributions by Gill Baldwin, Camilo García Aycardi & Federico Poni. Produced by Erik Peters, Ruta Genyte & Louisa Teichmann in collaboration with MAMA and Mary Ponomareva.

In recent decades, our engagement with the world has become increasingly virtual. This shift has profoundly affected our relationship with and understanding of images. The global pandemic has exacerbated the situation: we now interact with the world almost exclusively through images on screens. In discussions of how the new reality is affecting people’s everyday lives, however, surprisingly little attention is paid to the role of the lens in shaping our new virtualized “being in the world.”

The artworks brought together in the exhibition Performing the Lens, all produced by 2020 graduates of the Piet Zwart Institute either as part of their degree projects or shortly after graduation, signal a reengagement by artists with the formative power of lenses. Through reinvestigating and expanding established lens-based practices and discourse, these works explore the lens as an active tool in the construction and perpetuation of reality. Focusing on the choreography, algorithms and materiality of contemporary imagemaking, Performing the Lens stimulates new ways of being, seeing and imagining that ground us in the world again.

Director: Nguyen Ngoc Trang Thy

Script Co-writer: Vien Khau

Graphic Designer: Tran Tu Nguyen

Festival name: London Lift-Off Film Festival 2021

Festival Date: 7th Jan 2021 – 1st February 2021

Festival information.

The year is 2020. The world is fighting a pandemic. In the Netherlands, the government announces city lockdown to control the spreading of the disease. Stuck in a foreign country and longing for home, the narrator walks out one day, starting a trip hoping to find somewhere to belong. FROM HOME TO HOME” weaves together mysterious images that evoke classic science fiction cinema, such as SOLARIS and FRAU IM MONDE to convey the experience of being trapped in the uncanny and silent Netherlands while longing for home. And depicts the protagonist’s journey of finding her way home – on the wrong side of the world.

you to the launch of our final publication, Collectiveioning.

///

/ko ‘lek tiv yon ning/ The gathering of collective memory. A pre-literate notion of memory, in a communal way, something commemorative rather than putting a memory in a container. What we thought it was going to be changed completely. We are in that way changing our memory of what it was supposed to be. What are you able to collect? Memories? Objects? People? A collection of texts and people, collecting and composing each other? Somehow it’s not even important that we have all the knowledge, what’s important is the living, generative sense of the collection.

Collectiveioning is a publication that collects the work generated in our time at XPUB, from collective Special Issues in the first year (Special Issues 07, 08, 09), with threads that connect to the second year graduation projects.

We will present our collective and individual research on Friday, July 10, 2020 at 19:00, followed by a Q & A session. Although the presentation will be concise and spectacular, if you miss it, a web-to-print website will remain online, where you can choose to make your own co(ll/nn)ections. You may also print out what you collect from it at your own leisure. A complete, deluxe, shelf object (i.e. a printed version) will follow in October 2020.

XPUB is a two-year course that prepares students to critically engage with societal issues and social practices within the fast changing field of art, design, and cultural production. More specifically, XPUB focuses on the acts of making things public and creating publics in the age of post-digital networks. XPUB’s interests in publishing are therefore twofold: first, publishing as the inquiry and participation into the technological frameworks, political context, and cultural processes through which things are made public; and second, how these are, or can be, used to create publics.

The online launch of the Collectiveioning XPUB publication is part of Willem de Kooning’s graduate programme The Chain of Events. This programme will present the work of both Master and Bachelor alumni in the form of an online Graduation Catalogue and a Graduation Show programme that will last until the end of March 2021. The official launch of the catalogue is planned for the 17 of July 2020. For more information please visit

We are seeing the world being potentially transformed by the massive popular resistance to racism and anti-black violence that has been prompted by recent displays of racist brutality. The master’s courses of the Piet Zwart Institute stand in support of movements for racial justice around the world and we hold ourselves accountable to address the urgent demands being issued through protests and community-led actions. We recognize that to stand in solidarity with this movement is to commit to do the work of reflecting its aims of justice and equity within our educational and creative community. We must continue to support and empower diverse perspectives. We must deepen our commitment to making our resources more accessible to a local and an international student body. We must platform voices of resistance and amplify their work through our curricula and programming. And we will continue to engage in active and persistent dialogue and self-critique. We remain committed to manifesting the transformative change we hope to see in the world as educators, artists, and designers. Black Lives Matter.
